Reviewed: 3D Prophet DDR-DVI
Author: Chris Kim       Date: July 4th, 2000
Page: 2

These are the specifications of the 3D Prophet DDR-DVI board. As it can be seen, the specifications of this board are almost no different than any other GeForce DDR-based board, whether performance will make any difference is yet unknown, but the benchmarks will be posted ahead.

  • 120MHz core/150MHz memory clock (300MHz effectively)
  • 256-bit quad-pipeline processing
  • 480 million texture-mapped pixels/second
  • 15 million triangles/second
  • 4X AGP with Fast Writes
  • Hardware transform engine
  • Hardware lighting engine (8 hardware lights) for unique visual quality
  • 100% hardware triangle setup
  • 4.47GB/second memory bandwidth with 2 data transfers per clock
  • DVI interface for high resolution display on digital monitors up to 1600x1200 with 16 million colors
  • DVD Hardware Decoding
  • TV/Video Output: NTSC and PAL
  • 350MHz RAMDAC
  • 2D Resolutions up to 1920x1440 in 16.7 million colors and 2048x1536 in 65,000 colors
  • 3 year limited warranty on labor and parts
  • First getting the videocard into the system is relatively easy, just like any other videocard, take out the old one, and put the new one in. Driver installation is easy with simple onscreen commands to follow. Only slight problem with the card is the possibility that the AGP slot in the motherboard might not support the full 18W of power that the videocard needs.

    Since the card also comes loaded with a 350MHz RAMDAC, crisp clear 2D resolutions in Windows are what to expect. While the 2D display of the 3D Prophet DDR-DVI is respectable, it still doesn't compete at the level of Matrox's better quality. At maxed out resolutions, the 3D Prophet DDR-DVI maintained a high quality display with flicker-free resolutions.
